Aston Villa vs Manchester United live: How to watch, stream link, score
Aston Villa looks to complete a season sweep of Manchester United at Villa Park on Saturday while avenging an early-week FA Cup loss to the Red Devils (Watch live at 12:30pm ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com).
Villa won 1-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season, though that Premier League match saw both clubs managed by different men.
That day saw Dean Smith’s men triumph over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s hosts when Kortney Hause pushed home an 88th-minute goal on a day United took 28 of the game’s 35 shots.
Old rivals are now with Villa as ex-Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is Villa’s manager and he’s bringing former Reds star Phillipe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona.
Ralf Rangnick is now leading Man United, his 4-2-2-2 getting mixed performances but mostly results in his short stint at the wheel.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Aston Villa vs Manchester United.
